Megastar before mega-backdrop: On 3 May 2014 Robbie Williams will perform at the legendary Top of the Mountain Concert in Ischgl on the at 2,300 meters altitude. Right in the heart of the ski area, "Robbie" with his full Big Band will play and present their new number-one album "Swings Both Ways" on the giant open-air stage.

 

It'll be hot and cold, it'll be jazzy, it'll be legendary: At the Top of the Mountain Concert on 3 May 2014, megastar Robbie Williams will take to the world-famous Idalp-stage at 2,300 meters altitude. That alone would be enough for most. But not for the lifestyle metropolis of the Alps. Thus the exceptional entertainer will be bringing his entire Big Band with him to the ski area. Before an impressive alpine backdrop, he will present his new album "Swings Both Ways" and lend his unique sound to the season finale. The set will include: Classics such as "Minnie The Moocher", a new version of "Supreme" and his latest hit "Go Gentle". Whether "Robbie" will take to the skis himself in the Silvretta Arena remains to be seen. One thing is for sure: The charismatic singer will melt more than just the snow in Ischgl. He should be a bit excited though, as a jazz-pop concert on the peaks of the Alps is a first even for this megastar with 17 Brit-Awards and more than 70 million albums sold. In doing so, "Robbie" will follow in the footsteps of some major acts: Before him, world stars such as Elton John, Bob Dylan, Tina Turner or Pink have performed on this stage. The concert begins at 13:00. Advance sales of day-ski passes for 3 May will begin according to availability on 7 April 2014. These will cost 115 Euro. A 2-day-ski pass/3-day-ski pass, available only with a TVB Paznaun-Ischgl or Samnaun Guest Card, and which includes the concert on 3 May, is available for 125 Euro/135 Euro.

Possibly record-breaking season finale in the year of anniversaries

The 2013/14 season is a very special one for Ischgl, as the world-famous valley celebrates two anniversaries that have been instrumental in shaping the history of skiing. Apart from the 50th anniversary of the Silvretta Cable Car, 2014 will see the 20th anniversary of the big Top of the Mountain Concerts since Elton John first sang on the Idalp in 1995. On these occasions, the company wanted to provide guests with a definite highlight. In a series of talks, Hannes Parth from the Silvrettaseilbahn AG company together with Peter Reiner from the Tourism Association Paznaun-Ischgl managed to persuade Robbie Williams that a performance before the unique backdrop of the Silvretta Arena would be special for him, too. Conformation was received in November. With him, one of the most successful stars of the last ten years will take to the stage in Ischgl. For one of his concerts, "Robbie" sold 1.6 million tickets within one day and received an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records for this feat. In Germany, "Robbie" is one of the most successful artists of the last decade with his albums. "Swings Both Ways" is his tenth studio album and has already reached the top of the German album charts.

 

Beyond country borders: Skiing fun in Ischgl until the beginning of May.

As varied as the world stars in Ischgl are the slopes of the Silvretta Arena. Thanks to the high-altitude location between 1,400 and 2,900 metres, good skiing conditions are ensured until the beginning of May. Especially in spring, the area is very popular with skiing and snowboarding fans for enjoying sunshine skiing. No wonder, as the Playstation Vita Ischgl Snowpark, new freeride options, first-class events and state-of-the-art facilities make Ischgl a varied and eventful winter sports resort all the way to Switzerland's Samnaun: More information can be found at www.ischgl.com.
